A tale of teenage love, friendship and betrayal set at the dawn of the Scottish Enlightenment. Based on the true story of three Edinburgh girls who formed The Fair Intellectual Club in 1717. They recruited other young ladies aged 15-19 with a view to discovering 'what we might attain unto if we were as industrious to cultivate our minds as we are to adorn our bodies'. Members studied literature, science and philosophy. They were sworn to absolute secrecy, but betrayed by an enemy within who exposed her sisters to scandal.
